This Post is Somewhat Insulting to Jeff Bennett

It's the first day of February. In 18 days, pitchers and catchers will report. Truth be told, most of my time has been spent working on the DRB Annual (see a preview of the design here) and I didn't have the chance to write a thorough post for today. Instead, I'd like to offer a discussion question, although if you guys just use this as an open thread, I'll understand that too.

Lately I've spent a lot of time thinking about the hedonic value of attending games and of certain victories. A win against the Orioles means less to us than a win against the Red Sox. Why? Well, it's obvious. But I want to take it a step further eventually, and for today I'm going to take it a half a step further by posing a "would you rather ..." question. So let's get to it:

Do you prefer your wins to be decided in:

A) Late, thrilling fashion

B) Early, blowout fashion

Similarly, or perhaps in stark contrast, when your team must lose, do you prefer the defeats to be decided in:

A) Late, thrilling fashion

B) Early, blowout fashion

Included is a picture of Jeff Bennett. Because.
